Zwinger 1, the studio stage of the Heidelberg Theatre and Orchestra, and Zwinger 3, the venue of the Young Theatre, are located in the Zwinger.

You can reach the Zwinger with bus lines 20 and 36 to the bus stop Rathaus-Bergbahn.

The following applies to all venues: As usual, our tickets include the Kombi-Ticket of the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Neckar (VRN) and are thus valid as tickets for buses, trams and released trains (RE, RB and S-Bahn) in the VRN. The ticket is valid on the day of the performance and until 3 a.m. the following day. It is therefore worthwhile collecting reserved tickets before the day of the performance.
Information about the timetables is available at or by calling the service number 0621 / 1077 077; €0.14 per minute or part thereof from a landline.

People with mobility disabilities can drive up to the Zwinger to get off. Parking spaces for vehicles of people with disabilities are available in the surrounding car parks.
